NameEdit

We plan to use Wikimedia Iran as our main name and our would-be chapter. We are working on the chapter and hope to get it done within the next year.

Objectives and plansEdit

  1. Promotion of Wikimedia projects and free content in general. To encourage the use of Wikimedia resources in education (at cultural centers, associations and universities);
  2. Outreach work in schools, universities and by social media to tell people about Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects;
  3. Edit-a-thons to help Wikipedians/Wikimedians to enrich content;
  4. Participation in different cultural events including Iran national books exhibition and more;
  5. Photography trips and upload-a-thons to teach users how to upload images to Commons and how to use them;
  6. Community support: monitoring of current activities and the development status of Iranian projects (including Persian, Mazandarani, Gilaki, Kurdish wikis); Wikipedia 10 Iran
  7. Continuing work on Wikimedia Iran, although progress is slow.
